We brew Fluxus every year to commemorate the anniversary of our first beer sold in July 1995. The name Fluxus is Latin for continuous change and every year, Fluxus is brewed with a different recipe.
This year’s Fluxus is a Strong Golden Ale brewed with a simple malt bill of Pilsner malt and a large portion of local maple syrup added to the kettle. After fermentation with a Belgian-style yeast strain it is dry hopped with two experimental hops, 06277 and 06297. The beer exhibits aromas of strawberry, pineapple and lime. The finish is balanced with a dry malty character.
Since 2007, $1 from every bottle sold of Allagash Tribute Series Fluxus beer has been donated to a scholarship fund for pediatric nurses in the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at the Maine Medical Center. We love living and working in Maine, and our Tribute Series beers are one way we give back to groups and organizations in our home state that make a positive impact in our greater neighborhood.
